Lexington Schools and Indoctrination

The Joseph Estabrook Elementary School in Lexington, MA is in the news again. This time over the same issue of homosexual curriculum being taught to second graders but another parent besides David Parker is making the complaints. Lexington parent Robin Wirthlin’s 7 year old son was subjected to the children's book ''King & King" as part of a lesson about different types of weddings. A prince marries another prince instead of a princess in the book, and Mrs. Wirthlin did not agree with the indoctrination that was forced upon her son.

As I was talking with Mr. Parker this morning regarding this issue, because it was all over talk radio, I could sense another civil litigation lawsuit occurring in Lexington.
Mr. Parker told me he was immediately going to call his friends to swarm the radio waves as Superintendent Paul Ash was on the John Depetro show, WRKO 680am, this morning. I knew then that many things were going to be argued on the show and I will have full coverage of what was said in the very near future.
As I had said in a
previous post about David Parker:
What is the purpose of teaching children about homosexuality and transgenderism? I do believe the gay community needs more rights in order to live a more fulfilling life with their partners. On the other hand, it is wrong to teach children how they can lead a life that is considered unnatural by society. There is not one human society, advanced or primitive, civilized or uncivilized, where homosexual relationships’, including same-sex “marriages”, has existed as a normative part of family life. What is it about marriage that interests same-sex partners besides the sharing of benefits at a place of employment? Is this truly an issue of equality or do we as a society need to meet the gay community in the middle when it comes to rights? Would this community accept more rights and then agree to stop trying to eliminate traditional marriage as we know it? What do we need to do to make both sides comfortable?

It's terrible that our children are being indoctrinated in the name of education. What ever happened to teaching kids reading, writing, and arithmetic? Now it's become so all-encompassing as to teach everything but what really matters - God, and the redemption of mankind through Jesus' shed blood on the cross.

Not in the name of 'education' Mr. Dawbin, in the name of the Anti-Christ.

In regards to teachings about God, check out the Boston Globe pg. A6. The state of Georgia is going to propose a piece of legislation that would give schools the option to teach students about the bible in a 'non-indoctrinating' manner. Interesting stuff!!

Is the article on the Globe's website? I have heard about this legislation in Georgia, I think...I long for the day when Massachusetts is part of the NEW Bible Belt (which runs from Boston to Buffalo, and south to Philadelphia, in my vision...).

I had tried briefly to look for it on the Globe's website (4/21/06 edition of Globe)but had no luck. I had read it at lunch on Friday in the actual paper. Keep on looking, it has to be there.

Chris,

You said:

"Religious discussion are valid because they are the basis of an argument against same sex marriage."

No Chris, stripping the Commonwealth there right to vote is the basis of the argument.

If you know your facts, nothing religious was ever mentioned in the petition to protect the DEFINITION of marriage as between one man and one woman.

The referendum was signed in churches by parishioners simply because that is where the sacred institution of marriage begins.

Same-sex marriage is not about religion; it is not about homosexuality, heterosexuality or any other type of sexual orientation. It is about democracy. This is what the homosexual community is afraid of, the rights of the people. Isn’t that the same argument the homosexual community is pushing? Why does 'rights' have to be an issue for one group and not the other? Please Chris, give me an irrefutable answer to that question!!
